LZ9W M/M Contest station is based mainly on rigs under 900 USD
What we have at this moment are
5 pcs IC746
3 pcs TS850SAT
1pcs FT1000MP Mark V
What is more important than a radio itself in contesting is the operator who
stands behind it.
By the way I am not impressed by the performance of FT1000MP or MarkV after
side by side comparisons with either 746 or 850.
For the money TS850SAT is simply THE BEST. Telling you that from
experience - I worked with all radios mentioned above in biggest contests.
And every radio can have problems when used in contests - especially in M/M
